We ended the sampling year on a strong note!
To everyone waiting anxiously for the results of the 2017 CWMN season - the wait is (sort of) over!
The 2016 Citizen Water Monitoring Network (CWMN) season wrapped up on Wednesday, October 13.
Our Citizen's Water Monitoring Network (CWMN) program has wrapped up for another year with our last sampling event in October. Results show a healthy river in many places, but some problem spots remain.
September CWMN bacteria results were markedly lower than August's, due to lower rainfall.
August CWMN results revealed higher levels of bacteria due to increased rainfall prior to sampling
Results from the June 2015 CWMN sampling showed high levels of bacteria across the watershed
Our monthly results from the Citizen's Water Monitoring Network October sampling show improved flow around the watershed as well as lower bacteria levels than previous months.
Dry weather this summer has had an effect on water quality in the watershed.
Our volunteers have been hard at work taking water samples this year. The results are in for July 2014 and show dissolved oxygen is at low levels throughout the watershed in the summer months.
Recent water quality data shows high bacteria levels during wet weather.
